The Children’s Society releases the Good Childhood Report 2014 (The Children’s Society, 2014)

This report highlights children’s perceptions of their wellbeing and life satisfaction

The Children’s Society latest report analysed children’s wellbeing. The report highlighted children’s perceptions of their wellbeing and life satisfaction. It is based on surveys or interviews with about 50,000 children in about 40 countries worldwide on what makes them happy.

The report highlighted differences across gender, and found that children’s subjective wellbeing can be linked to parental depression, the extent to which their family was affected by the crisis, and internet usage. It emphasised the importance of spending time with children, listening to them and enabling them to be active and to engage in learning.
